It’s also highly notable how the number of Internet users in Africa has increased.
I've decided to organize the statistics and facts into two main areas.Almost every week there seems to be a new statistic produced that tries to top the last one.While statistics can be spun to make almost anything look good, I've tried to report just the basic facts.New arrivals in the top 10 are India, Brazil, Russia and Nigeria. These are countries that had a very weak Internet presence ten years ago, but have now managed to gain much wider access to the Internet.This of course means that some other countries have dropped out. One of these countries, Nigeria, has even grown to the extent that it’s now the 10th largest country on the Internet.The first will deal with the general online dating industry as a whole.
The second are will be for actual dating services and be divided accordingly.The number of people employed in the field is expected to increase from 15,606 in 2011 to nearly 17,000 by 2016.The growth is fueled by a high profit margin, a low (but increasing) barrier to entry and a falling social stigma against meeting your mate online.The Internet hasn’t just become larger, it’s also become more spread out, more global.This becomes evident when viewing the distribution of Internet users for the top 50 countries in 2000 and in 2010.Here’s another way to see how much things have changed: Now that we’ve established that the number of Internet users is more than five times as large as it was in 2000, how has that growth been distributed through the different regions of the world?
